  • How Can Galectin-3 as a Biomarker of Fibrosis Improve Atrial Fibrillation
           Diagnosis and Prognosis'

    • Authors: Maria Mariana Barros Melo da Silveira, Joao Victor Batista Cabral, Bruno de Melo Souza, Louis Hussein Patu Hazime, Sara Larissa de Melo Araujo, Amanda Tavares Xavier, Edivaldo Bezerra Mendes Filho, Luydson Richardson da Silva Vasconcelos, Dario Celestino Sobral Filho, Dinaldo Cavalcanti de Oliveira
      Abstract: Galectin-3 (Gal-3) is a biomarker of fibrosis that has been associated with atrial remodeling. Acknowledging the presence of a biomarker in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) can allow for a better clinical treatment. The aim of this study was to assess the association of Gal-3 with atrial fibrosis in patients with AF. This is a systematic review study. From the total number of studies analyzed, 12 demonstrated a relation between atrial fibrosis and Gal-3 in patients with AF and presented statistically significant association values. We conclude that Gal-3 is associated with atrial fibrosis in patients with AF in all types, as well as after the arrhythmia treatment by ablation.

  • Predictors of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth in Symptomatic
           Patients Referred for Breath Testing

    • Authors: Jeremy Liu Chen Kiow, Ratiba Bellila, Amelie Therrien, Sacha Sidani, Mickael Bouin
      Abstract: Background: Indications for a breath test (BT) are well established in the symptomatic patient with risk factors predisposing them to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Characteristics and the profile of this population are not well known. Our objective was to study the characteristics of patients undergoing a BT for SIBO and to identify factors associated with a positive BT.Methods: Retrospective study was conducted from 2012 to 2016 at the neurogastroenterology unit of the Centre Hospitalier de l’Universite de Montreal (CHUM). All patients who completed a BT (lactulose and/or glucose) were included. Demographics and clinical factors were analyzed to identify predictors of positive BT. Type of antibiotic treatment and clinical response were compiled. Groups of patients with (SIBO+) and without SIBO (SIBO-) were also compared.Results: A total of 136 patients were included in the study (mean age 51.2, range 20 - 80 years; 63% women), and SIBO was detected in 33.8% (n = 46). Both groups were similar in terms of age, body mass index, and gender. SIBO was significantly associated with the presence of abdominal pain (odds ratio (OR) = 4.78; P < 0.05), bloating (OR = 5.39; P < 0.05), smoking (OR = 6.66; P < 0.05), and anemia (OR = 4.08; P < 0.05). No association was identified with gender, age, obesity, and risk factors for SIBO. Antibiotics were used in 43% of patients with a positive BT, but clinical response was not significantly different in the subgroup that received antibiotics versus the subgroup that did not.Conclusions: The prevalence of SIBO is high in symptomatic patients who underwent breath testing. Abdominal pain, bloating, smoking, and anemia are strongly associated with SIBO. Treatment of SIBO with antibiotics needs to be further investigated to better determine its efficacy on gastrointestinal symptoms.

  • A Coronary Artery Calcium Score of Zero in Patients Who Have Undergone
           Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography Is Associated With Freedom From
           Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events

    • Authors: Yuhei Shiga, Joji Morii, Yoshiaki Idemoto, Kohei Tashiro, Yuiko Yano, Yuta Kato, Takashi Kuwano, Makoto Sugihara, Shin-ichiro Miura
      Abstract: Background: The coronary artery calcification score (CACS) is a good marker of future cardiovascular risk. We determined the association between the CACS and the prognosis in patients who have undergone coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA).Methods: We performed a prospective cohort study and enrolled 502 consecutive patients who underwent CCTA for screening of coronary artery disease (CAD) at Fukuoka University Hospital (FU-CCTA Registry) and either were clinically suspected of having CAD or had at least one cardiovascular risk factor with a follow-up of up to 5 years. The patients were divided into CACS = 0 and CACS > 0 groups. Using CCTA, ≥ 50% coronary stenosis was diagnosed as CAD, and the number of significantly stenosed coronary vessels (VD), Gensini score and CACS were quantified. The primary endpoint was major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE: cardiovascular death, ischemic stroke, acute myocardial infarction and coronary revascularization).Results: %CAD, the number of VD and the Gensini score in the CACS = 0 group were significantly lower than those in the CACS > 0 group. %MACE in the CACS = 0 group was also significantly lower than that in the CACS > 0 group. Kaplan-Meier curves indicated that the CACS = 0 group showed significantly greater freedom from MACE than the CACS > 0 group (P = 0.008). Finally, only CACS = 0 was independently associated with MACE (odd ratio: 0.41, 95% confidence interval: 0.17 - 0.97, P = 0.041).Conclusions: A CACS of 0 in patients who underwent CCTA was associated with a good prognosis.

  • Mortality and the Risk Factors in Elderly Female Patients With Femoral
           Neck and Trochanteric Fractures

    • Authors: Toshihiro Higashikawa, Kenji Shigemoto, Kenichi Goshima, Takeshi Horii, Daisuke Usuda, Takuro Morita, Manabu Moriyama, Hiromi Inujima, Masahiro Hangyou, Kimiko Usuda, Shigeto Morimoto, Tadami Matsumoto, Shigeki Takashima, Tsugiyasu Kanda, Masashi Okuro, Takeshi Sawaguchi
      Abstract: Background: The main purpose of this study is to exhaustively explore risk factors, including age, gender, and several clinical indices, for mortality in elderly patients with femoral neck fracture and to evaluate some of them using survival analyses.Methods: This was a retrospective study tracking 1 year for vital prognosis. Data were collected at post-operation from medical records of the cases. Survival analysis was conducted to investigate the risk factors for death, including albumin, urinary retention, activity of daily living (ADL), and cognitive disorder.Results: We recruited 318 patients with a history of hip surgery carried out at Toyama Municipal Hospital, in which 39 patients died for 1 year after discharge. The results showed a significant decrease in survival rate in low albumin, positive urinary retention, and low ADL (P < 0.01, by log-rank test). The hazard ratios (95% confidence interval) of albumin, urinary retention, ADL, and cognitive disorder were 0.36 (0.19 - 0.69), 0.4 (0.2 - 0.8), 0.29 (0.15 - 0.58) and 0.65 (0.32 - 1.29), respectively.Conclusions: This study demonstrated that albumin, urinary retention and ADL were the important risk factors for mortality, and suggested that the postoperative management of albumin, urinary retention and ADL is important, especially in elderly female patients receiving surgery of femoral neck and trochanteric fractures.

  • Low-Flow Nasal Cannula Hydrogen Therapy

    • Authors: Motoaki Sano, Kohsuke Shirakawa, Yoshinori Katsumata, Genki Ichihara, Eiji Kobayashi
      Abstract: Background: Molecular hydrogen (H2) is a biologically active gas that is widely used in the healthcare sector. In recent years, on-site H2 gas generators, which produce high-purity H2 by water electrolysis, have begun to be introduced in hospitals, clinics, beauty salons, and fitness clubs because of their ease of use. In general, these generators produce H2 at a low-flow rate, so physicians are concerned that an effective blood concentration of H2 may not be ensured when the gas is delivered through a nasal cannula. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate blood concentrations of H2 delivered from an H2 gas generator via a nasal cannula.Methods: We administered 100% H2, produced by an H2 gas generator, at a low-flow rate of 250 mL/min via a nasal cannula to three spontaneously breathing micro miniature pigs. An oxygen mask was placed over the nasal cannula to administer oxygen while minimizing H2 leakage, and a catheter was inserted into the carotid artery to monitor the arterial blood H2 concentration.Results: During the first hour of H2 inhalation, the mean (standard error (SE)) H2 concentrations and saturations in the arterial blood of the three pigs were 1,560 (413) nL/mL and 8.85% (2.34%); 1,190 (102) nL/mL and 6.74% (0.58%); and 1,740 (181) nL/mL and 9.88% (1.03%), respectively. These values are comparable to the concentration one would expect if 100% of the H2 released from the H2 gas generator is taken up by the body.Conclusions: Inhalation of 100% H2 produced by an H2 gas generator, even at low-flow rates, can increase blood H2 concentrations to levels that previous non-clinical and clinical studies demonstrated to be therapeutically effective. The combination of a nasal cannula and an oxygen mask is a convenient way to reduce H2 leakage while maintaining oxygenation.

  • The Use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in Substance Use Disorders: A
           Review of Literature

    • Authors: Joy Osaji, Chiedozie Ojimba, Saeed Ahmed
      Abstract: Background: Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a form of behavioral therapy that teaches people to learn to accept rather than avoid challenging situations in their lives. ACT has shown to be an intervention with great success in the reduction of various mental disorders and substance use disorders (SUDs). The core of ACT when used in SUD treatment is guiding people to accept the urges and symptoms associated with substance misuse (acceptance) and use psychological flexibility and value-based interventions to reduce those urges and the symptoms (commitment). The purpose of this study is to review the existing literature to examine the evidence on the use of ACT in the management of SUD.Methods: A thorough search of four databases (CINAHL, PubMed.gov, PsycINFO and PsycNET) from 2011 to 2020 was conducted using search terms like ACT, ACT and SUD, ACT, and substance misuse. The articles retrieved were critically appraised using the Critically Appraised Topic (CAT) Checklist.Results: Most of the studies showed that ACT was effective in the management of SUD showing significant evidence of a reduction in substance use or total discontinuation with subsequent abstinence.Conclusions: The literature review concluded that success has been achieved using ACT either as monotherapy or in combination with other therapy in the treatment of individuals with SUD.

  • Could Estrogen Protect Women From COVID-19'

    • Authors: Roxanna Pirhadi, Vikram Sinai Talaulikar, Joseph Onwude, Isaac Manyonda
      Abstract: The apparent gender differences in favor of women in the risk of contracting and dying from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and the fact that such trends have also been observed in recent epidemics including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), have prompted the obvious question: Are the reasons life-style or biological' True, women generally make healthier lifestyle choices as compared to men. Women do not smoke or drink as much as men, and they have a lower burden of those diseases (heart disease, diabetes or chronic lung conditions) that are known to be significant factors in the higher death rates among men with COVID-19. But there is compelling evidence for a role for biological factors. Genes are likely to play an important role. The X chromosome, of which women possess two, contains the largest number of immune-related genes of the whole human genome, theoretically giving women double the advantage over men in mounting an efficient and rapid immune response. A fundamental difference between women and men is their hormonal milieu, and it is not unreasonable to suppose that the dominant female hormone estrogen could influence the response to infection. In this paper we evaluate the evidence and mechanisms by which estrogen could provide protection to women from a variety of viruses, perhaps including the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

  • The Anatomical Relationship of Inferior Thyroid Artery and Recurrent
           Laryngeal Nerve: A Review of the Literature and Its Clinical Importance

    • Authors: George Noussios, Iosif Chatzis, Sergios Konstantinidis, Eva Filo, Antigone Spyrou, George Karavasilis, Anastasios Katsourakis
      Abstract: Background: Thyroidectomy is a quite common daily operation in general surgery. However, the anatomical structures of the region, mainly the relationship of recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) and inferior thyroid artery (ITA) makes the procedure challenging. The current review of the literature aims to report the anatomical variations of this relationship.Methods: The preferred reporting items for systemic reviews and meta-analyses (PRISMA) guidelines were used for the systematic review of the articles found after an extensive research through PubMed, Science Direct, EMBASE and Web of Science. A total of 16 studies were included for the statistical analysis.Results: The results showed that the most common type of RLN was posterior to the ITA. However, according to Higgins I2 statistics the heterogeneity of the studies was quite high.Conclusions: The relationship between the RLN and the ITA is quite variable. Anatomical knowledge of the region is vital for attempting to eliminate the risk of injuring the nerve during thyroidectomy.
